I'm a day or two late to catch the discussion on stained salts, but here on the left is another salt I had in ruby stain, the Nevada pattern in the US Glass States series. There were only a few salts done in those, Washington, Illinois, and Nevada I think.

Love that quartz with a silver rim, Judy. Stone makes such pretty salts and I haven't seen many with rims.
Lynda, I've had that swan or goose with the enameled metal body. Don't know where it went, probably sold.

No need to worry about us, Debi. Take your time as we enjoy the flying witch and cat.

I had fun tracking down my dad's family history a few years ago. I never suspected they were German. When his direct ancestors came to the US from Germany in the 1700's, they changed their name from the very German sounding Hirsch to Deer, English translation. I always assumed they were English. Fun surprises.

I am pretty sure Don has a flashed Shoshone salt. I remember it from when he was featured in Collector's Corner in the newsletter the couple years I did it.

I guess I need to get rid of the Halloween decor, but hang in there a few more days. I'm just tired of working on computer stuff right now. Need to play around with my Ancestry account. Been away from it too long working on H&J.

Joan, I should never post before my morning caffeine. I jumped right over your reply that the Moser salts are flashed, not stained. Thanks for confirming that. Some stain seems to last better than others too--the Fine Cut and Block can fade badly.
Maybe I made up the name Fan with Diamonds; the OSC calls it Quartered Block with Diamonds on plate 835.

My salt for the day is from a photo I kept, most handsome and probably rarest ruby stained salt I ever had. It's Shoshone, US Glass. I've never seen another stained one. I bought a pair, listed them separately on eBay auctions, and both went to ruby stain collectors, not salt collectors. I probably should have kept one, but in the early years of this century I was really into selling.

Nice array of examples, Joan. I've never seen the fan and diamond with a silver base attached. When I mentioned the stained EAPG patterns, I completely blanked on my Moser patterns, though the color on the cabochons seems different from the stain on pieces like the fan and diamond, like your 26691, which is so easily scratched off. The fine cut and block also seems to lose its stain with age and wear.
Could the Moser pieces be something other than stain? I will go read the article for which you offered the link.

This salt is commonly found with ruby stain, but a little harder to find with amber.

Lynda, If you have any of King's Fine Cut & Block salts in clear with blue, pink, yellow or amber on them than you have stained glass salts.

Debi, You used to have a very good article on the site explaining the difference between flashed, cased and stained glass but I couldn't find it. So I have attached the link below in case you would like to add it again.

Debi, my Scalloped Six-point has larger areas of stain than the one on the H&J cover, so I knew something was amiss about that one. I never looked at the boat closely enough to realize it was damaged too. As you say, strange. Maybe a photographer picked out salts to put in his cover photo.

Lynda, as far as I know, staining was done on portions of the pattern on EAPG glass. It is a thin coat and easily scratched. It wouldn't be a thick layer, and probably not just streaks on plain glass. If that is a medallion on the front of your glass, could be stained.

Nancy V: Funny story about the one on the H&J cover. That one was ground down and only left the little triangles with ruby stain, so I sold it Shirley (CameoShirl a long time ago). I think she was in Australia. Anyway, after I sold it I realized it was the one pictured on the cover because I bought it from Chris Christensen at a convention. Somehow he ended up with a lot of Patty Johnson's salts. So I was kind of bummed out I sold one on the book cover. At some point in my early collecting days before I knew anything about Lacies or the Neal book I bought a boat that looked just like the one on the cover of H&J. Wasn't until I got it that I realized the front was chipped. Then after awhile I learned more about Lacies and found out the whole curlycue was broken off and missing. With all the wonderful salts they do have pictured in H&J why would they put damaged ones on the cover? Still can't figure that one out.

Lynda, I can't really tell about your piece. Several years ago my sister and I got into ruby and amber stained glass, selling various kinds of pieces to collectors of that type. I sold several salts for high prices. I believe they were thought to be more rare than they actually were. The two salts of the diamond and fan pattern at the front of the blue base I bought not long ago for about $30 each, replacing ones I'd sold for $500 each in the 80's or 90's. That's how much prices can fluctuate. I don't think open salt collectors ever valued stained salts that high. There is a ruby stained salt on the cover of H&J, scalloped 6-point pattern. There is one of those on the blue stand, back left, which shows reflected in the mirror back of the case.

Here's the other condiment base I'm using to hold salts. Again, sorry for a poor photo since I took a picture with it in place in a cabinet. i'm using it to hold ruby and amber stained salts. The blue base is such pretty glass. You can see the two levels which didn't show well in the picture of the clear glass one since I had to shoot it from directly above. For a while I put four more salts on the bottom level, but they didn't show up very well.

The yellow and violet are very rare white opalescent square hobnail. I am totally in love with them. Never seen those colors. Thank you for showing them. Your idea of using an empty condiment base is excellent. I've seen some salts displayed on glass cake stands too. Great ideas.
   Mary, loves ya.

Hi Mary, welcome back. Hope you're feeling better.

Nancy V, you're probably OK, but if there's room I think I'd put a cinder block on the base. You could paint it, maybe put it with a flat side showing outward and glue or paint some kitty pictures on it. You could put a ping pong ball inside the hole and let Lars go crazy trying to get it out. Can't sink his claws into it so it would be a challenge. Anything to help protect against disaster.

Debi, I made sure to buy one with a heavy, solid base. My apartment doesn't offer many places to put the tree, but I think the salt cabinet is at a safe angle.

My salt for today is a group of mostly hobnail, showing a repurposed glass condiment base to hold salts. A few times I've found a lovely old condiment base with no bottles and thought the holes would display small salts nicely. The picture is taken with the base inside a cabinet so excuse the quality.

Thanks for reminding me Joan...Judy did do all the heavy lifting on this H&J page. I was getting totally frustrated a number of times. I was sure I had a Mosser cobalt bird on branch salt but couldn't find it. Then I did find some salts I forgot I had. I thought there was only one old bird on branch, but Judy's clear one is different from my light blue one that I bought from Sweden. I know mine is not a Mosser repro because the detail on mine really stands out and not so on the Mosser ones. So, another mystery discovered with no clear answer.

Judy, thank you very much for all of your pictures and information on this page. Couldn't have done it without you. I know I still need to include a link or reference to your hen on nest information pages you made up. Trying to figure out the best way.

And I love that you thought to include the Boyd trademark chart at the bottom of the Boyd chick and bird-with-berry salts. You always amaze me when you come up with ideas and ways to include additional meaningful information that make these project pages so helpful to collectors. Thank you for all of the great work you do for us.

Finally got the new H&J page (926-948) on the website. I still have to do the 2 info pages on the covered hens, but I'm close!

I am pretty sure I have REVERSE 44 pedestal salt but not the footed one like Jan showed.

I'd completely forgotten that I have an orange pumpkin with a green leaf like Jette's. I have that blue/green Lundberg pot too. Sadly, mine is too tall for a salt, probably a toothpick.

Lynda's saki faces seem to have a glazed surface. Mine are unglazed pottery. I think her two on the left are depictions of the same character.

Lynda, I don't think mine and yours are the same sort, but can you show or describe the insides?

I think the little round devil mask cups are newer. Mine are from a set of the 7 Chinese Immortals. I have only 4, two are of the same guy, slightly different size. Of course they are all saki cups. I keep mine with salts because they are about the right size. Mine are in a wall cabinet hard to access right now. I scooted some things around to set up a new cat tree. I know they are glazed inside to have a good surface for saki, and I know there aren't faces there. As I recall, the inside is plain.

   Jan thank you. Have the Pedestal but not the other 4 legged one. It's a nice salt. Love it.
   Love the faces. Mine don't have cute faces inside. Darn it.
   Nancy D, I have tried very hard to get all the convention and club anniversary salts. Have not gotten this one as the silver didn't tickle me. Sarah Kawakami has one in black. That one I love. Did you know they came in black? Now I've got to watch for that one. My goodness, does it ever end. My bucket list is a mile long.

They pull a large trailer for all the kids and parents to ride on every year. I love seeing this pack of kids giggling and having a ball.
    Debi, glad to see a picture of all the originals. I think I'm missing pink. Yes, it was Kim who was re-doing them. I haven't seen any action from her for a while. They are cute little salts.
    Joan, I love those. They are just cute. I see the blue on ebay but not the yellows.
     Judy, Bakalite is really rare isn't it??? That pink is beautiful.
     Nancy V. What a delightful story and a delightful lady. I believe we've said before, we both have that same salt. It is a very pretty and different color.

Close to Halloween orange, one of my favorite art glass salts. I call the color apricot.
Wonderful gift from an English woman I was having dinner with in her home. I admired the salt, and she said "Have it. I bought it in a neighborhood boot sale for a few pounds and have no use for it." She then rummaged around in a drawer and came up with a second nice stand just like this one and gave it to me too.

Lynda, if I were a complete nut, I'd have commented when you said, and I quote, "I never think to check my bottoms."
 
And yeah, I think it's probably maker's initials. Two show Acoma, a pueblo I think, and the long mark--Tite something--is likely the maker's name.

Satsuma and Royal Beyreuth.and Daulton...those names count. Here are the bottom of my salts. I love western Indian jewelry too but it is expencive.

  Good afternoon everyone. Hope you are all well and staying healthy. Hi Beverly.
  I think all the Indian salts, American or Mexican, are very special. Beautifully worked. The black pots are very rich and they really hold my attention. My Indian salts are just mine.... no idea what tribe did them.
  Jan, that dark blue with enameling is stunning. I am so thrilled with all the fantastic salts. I have to admit though I like seeing all the salts. Even the clear individuals. When we do our new H/J pages, I'm thrilled to see every salt because they are now crystal clear. H/J is great but let's face it, some of the pictures are so hard to see all the intricate parts of the salt.

Just for some ID, the two black deeply cut ones are marked Santa Clara, and the small one is signed Tony Gutierrez, a famous potter. The two at center and right back row are signed apparently in pencil and hard to make out. The tan one with black and red decoration is signed Carla Nampeo, a recent member of the famous Hopi family of potters. I feel lucky to have found all of these. I think all may have been made as mini pots, not particularly intended as salts.

Thanks for the correction, P.J. I didn't stop to check on which NA group Santa Clara pueblo belonged to. I lived in Flagstaff for a while and bought a few Hopi larger pots. I've collected the mini pots whenever I could. Here is my small collection before I got that most recent Santa Clara one. One, as you can see, isn't in the black theme, and at least one or two aren't right for salt shape.

Hi Salty Friends... Seeing some Beautiful black salts here... Judy in Texas... I have your salt...and the pepper and spoon to go with it... Love that set !!! Sooo regal !!!

Nancy V... Not to "nit-pick" but... your Native American salt pot is Santa Clara...A PUEBLO Indian pot... from Central New Mexico..(I worked as a Certified Nurse-Midwife on their Pueblo)... and the Hopi is a separate "Nation" of it's own out in the eastern part of Arizona... Just like the Navajo is a separate "Nation" from the Hopi.. also in the eastern part of Arizona..... Can be confusing... I know I never knew this until I moved out here !!!! And when I was working in the Native American Hospital out at the border of New Mexico and Arizona... BOY what an education I got !!! Your pot is a WONDERFUL example of a salt pot...one that I've NEVER been able to get !!! GREEN EYES every time I see one on the board !!! :-)

  Debi, that pedestal is just beautiful. Notvan easy picture to get. And I can see the beauty.
  Nancy V. I love seeing your art glass. Salts of the day has brought out some amazing pieces. I am so tickled people are doing it.
  You know it's funny... different collectors are known for different things. Nancy V, I've always thought of as an art glass collector. Debi, blue. Jan, clear glass and colored old glass. I think Judy and Joan fit in there but mostly I think of their research. Sisie P, collects 2, P J and Inez for condiments, Jane for intaglios. Don,for NO PICTURES. Mary and J J for silver. Although J J also collects art glass like Nancy V.
Have I left anyone out? Linda H collects everything. I think the majority are like her. I think out of everything, my claim to fame is I collect sets, other wise I fall into everything except silver. Lolololol
  Debi, I have said to my kids that I'm glad I won't be around for this future. It was great growing up in the 50's and 60's. Playing outdoors, no fear, great music, small town USA. The computer changed everything.
  I have no idea on the makers of the blue square or rectangle. Just pretty.
   My salt of the day. I love this set. The frosted got broken up in Indiana. I need to glue it back together. I've been watching for another but haven't found one. I see the white one often on ebay but no frosted.
   All of you take care and be well.

Debi, I did think that pedestal salt was black at first look. It's stunning.

Here is another art glass with pink stripes and vaseline rigaree. Not my favorite. I need to pull out some of my best loved ones since art glass in stands have always been among what I like best and collected the most.

Joan, I think they didn't want to reopen colleges so they are saying Covid is rampant among students. After the election, if Trump wins, Covid will spike again to make it harder for Trump's economic numbers.. If Biden wins, things will reopen so Biden's economic recovery will look fantastic. It's ALL political! I am so disappointed with the media. It's almost like China deciding what will be reported and what won't. Sometimes I am happy that I will not be around to see what becomes of this country another 20-30 years down the road. I would hate to be young today. So much more fun growing up in the 50s and 60s. I love those art glass salts. So pretty. I don't think I've ever come across one for sale, or maybe I did a long time ago and it was very expensive. Another I've always liked is that rainbow one with yellow, pink and blue although the blue only showed up well on one that I've seen. Bucket list salt.

Lynda, that aqua color is different. Who made those? Are they marked? Looks like they could be Wilkerson salts.

OK, I'll add a salt too. Thick cobalt cut glass almost looks black. Probably English or Irish boat shape on pedestal.

  Joan, love the 2 art glass salts, beautiful. I gave my mother one like those a long time ago.
  My son had Covid, 1st symptom was loss of taste and smell. Head congestion but felt like regular flu. One of the problems
with covid is after affect. (I have read but haven't studied.) But I believe there has been organ damage reported. It does seem the virus is becoming less aggressive. Or it dosen't affect the young healthy population as much and the elderly are staying home.
  Sorry for the extra picture, sometimes my words get behind 'upload image' and if I touch the cursor I end up having to post a picture.
  These are just pretty.

I agree with Debi. Covid numbers are suspicious at best and they are testing like crazy in order to “find” more positive cases. My neighbor’s daughter went back to college and was tested even though she didn’t feel sick. They told her she tested positive and she had to quarantine for two weeks and during that time she never experienced even one symptom of the virus. Her mother doesn’t believe she ever had Covid. One thing you never hear reported is the drop in the death rates. Most of NJ’s deaths were early on and came from nursing homes after our governor (along with NY’s & PA’s) signed bills that required Covid patients must be returned to and quarantined in the nursing homes they came from. Wiped out our nursing home populations. Another thing, isn’t it amazing how flu cases and deaths have disappeared this year? Some say they are just being added into the Covid numbers.

On a brighter note…I have not posted a salt in a couple of days so here’s two. I believe the design is commonly called lily pads or peacock feathers.

   Hi y'all. Many Northerners got snow last night. Stay warm. I love that cozy feeling of 1st snow.
   My daughter is the Body Release person at Gainesville Shands Hospital. Not a great increase here but steady continuation of Covid deaths.
   We seem to be losing our "Salt of the day " people. Hope they get back here and show us the beauty.
   Stay well and be safe.

I think that's very true, Debi. In Texas there are places where hospitals are filling. Some have again cancelled all non-essential surgeries to keep services and beds available for covid patients as they did at earlier heights in cases.

I think what some are saying that the reason for the increase in cases is that so many more people are being tested. People are going to their doctors again, something that wasn't happening all summer long. They may not have any symptoms or even feel sick yet they test positive. Those people should self quarantine. I haven't heard that hospitals are full of cases again, or a huge number of people are put on ventilators. Just can't trust that deaths reported as Covid related really are. It's a shame we don't get reliable information because the pandemic was made so political.

Texas certainly is, positive virus rates on the rise, matching mid-summer numbers. Unfortunately, I think people are getting so tired of the lock-down that they are behaving unwisely. My big apartment complex is still under strict rules.
I'm not going anywhere.

Interesting salt, Susie. Any mark on the sea creature salt?

Mine isn't that interesting. Fairly common candy striped salt with vaseline rigaree. I don't especially like pink, but more of my art glass in stand salts are pink, or cranberry, than any other color. For some reason that seems to be the most numerous color for that type. Am I wrong?

  I don't think Mary has completely recouperated. So still thinking ablution her, praying... (and worrying) about her.
  My salt of the day. My china garden. These are on my hutch and I get to see them everytime I go to the kitchen. A very happy group.
